How can you enjoy going to the dentist? Really is that possible? Yes, yes it is and Dr. Nix' office is proof. Great customer service, starting with the front desk, a clean restroom, and friendly staff. Great place to get your teeth cleaned, crowns replaces and cavities filled!
Excellent dentist. Very efficient, friendly. This was my first visit and he was able to take care of my cleaning and repaired two teeth in less than 2 hours. Great experience!
Dr. Nix has a great personality, he is very friendly and warm. My waiting time was close to zero. I enjoyed my visit to Dr. Nix's office!
Another excellent visit, the teeth cleaning was a little too intensive for me, but that is a personal problem.
Dr. Nix took the time to explain how the filling was done. Everything being done was well organized.
The most pleasant experience I have ever had at a dentist's appointment.
Great! Nice guy, great anesthesia. Office is responsive.
No wait, other procedure was painless and finished ahead of schedule, and I enjoyed the conversation with Dr. Nix.
It was good visit!
Excellent office!
Had a fantastic experience with Dr. Nix. Everything was easy, from booking to check in and consultation. Dr Nix took time to answer all of my questions and did a very thorough job. I highly recommend him.
dr nix and his staff ,ROCK!
Dr. Nix is young as far as dentists go, but he seems to know the craft. He's very friendly, and goes out of his way to explain in clear, unambiguous terms what work he is doing and why. I recently left my previous dentist because I was dissatisfied with the quality of care. I hope Dr. Nix's practice grows, but not so much that he needs to rush!
Every visit is pleasant and professional. Dr. Nix always helps me feel relaxed and takes time to explain my options . I searched and searched for over a year to find him again and I'm glad I did. I look forward to seeing him and his office manager. I will recommend other patients as well. In fact my coWorker has also been looking for him. Rene
I had my first appointment with Dr. Nix on Friday April 15th and I must say he lives up to all of the hype that other zocdoc users have given him. He's a very charismatic guy which helps make you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your tooth cleaning. It's rare to find a dentist who is as knowledgeable, transparent & skilled as he is courteous and genuinely caring when it comes to your hygiene and we'll being. He may just become my dentist for life. P.S. The receptionist has a bright smile waiting for you when you walk through the door. Also, a major bonus. Keep up the good work.
Professional and friendly. My children never complain about dentist visits like I did when I was a kid. Appointment times are kept promptly. Service and care are excellent.
Dr. Nix has an excellent manner with his patients. He is personalble and funny all the while being very professional. I have and will recommend him in the future!
This was the most relaxed visit to a dentist I've ever encountered. It's a small, personal office with a dentist who doesn't come off as fake- jovial. My teeth are happy and I feel cared for. Great first visit!
Smart, attentive to detail, quality service and practice.
Awesome dentist and assistant. Both very friendly and know what they are doing. Dr. Nix is also really funny and informative so he makes you feel at ease during appointment. My teeth feel great! Will definitely go again.
Always easy in and out. Great people in the office. Very honest!
Friendly and professional experience. I would highly recommend Dr Nix for people searching for a dentist in the Silver Spring area
Great doctor!!
Dr Nix was very proficient at examining a site that had previously exhibited pain. All is now well, and painless. Dr Nix calls it "boring," with no evidence that any work is needed now.
Still satisfied with Jacob Nix's professional service as well as keeping him as my dentist!
Dr. Nix was professional & genuine. He takes the time to explain everything he is doing. I really enjoyed his approach to his patients...he streamlines the information to what you need to know to keep your teeth/gums healthy. Staff was courteous and friendly and I was in and out in less than an hour. Great experience.
Great Dentist with excellent bedside manners. He is very nice and explains everything very well. He and his office staff and nurse were very friendly and I enjoyed my visit.
Dr. Nix is great!!!
Dr. Nix and his staff are courteous, considerate and most of all highly competent. I would highly recommend Dr. Nix for all dental procedures.
This was my second appointment I've ever had with Dr. Nix, but he made it feel as though he's known me forever. This interaction, like my previous one, was very pleasant. It lasted under 30 minutes and because they actually utilize ZocDoc for their appointments, I was able to take advantage of the early check-in feature on here and didn't have to fill out any paperwork when I got there. I was greeted by Dr. Nix and able to be seen in under 5 minutes of my arrival. (Also a plus.) I can't rave or give enough positive reviews for him. Believe the hype folks. He will be my dentist for as long as I live in the DC metropolitan area.
Dr. Nix is friendly and professional. He explained the issues I was facing in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. This was my fourth visit (I had one annual exam and two fillings prior to this cleaning exam) and I'm still very impressed. I would highly recommend Dr. Nix to anyone who is looking for a dentist.
Was great
I read these reviews before going, and didn't quite believe Nix could be *THAT* good. But he was great. I told him at the outset that I have very sensitive gums, and he took care to be gentle. Ended up being the best cleaning I've ever had. No pain, but very thorough, and he talked and explained what he was doing (and why) throughout the whole procedure. They even gave me a travel pack with a toothbrush, floss, etc., on my way out -- quality items that I had been planning to buy anyway. Nix is incredibly friendly, incredibly professional, and best of all, gentle on your mouth. He doesn't rush you out the door. He takes ample time to explain anything you may have questions about. And his staff are just as easy to work with as well. I can't see myself using any other dentist for a long time.
Dr. Nix and his staff are simply wonderful. Knowledgeable, up to date with current technologies and treatments. Great to work with, even around those sticky issues about insurance. Conveniently located in downtown Silver Spring. Metro nearby, parking available. He'll continue to have my business.
Dr. Nix was fantastic! He was was very knowledgeable, friendly and great with my 3 year old daughter. This was my daughters first dentist appointment, so I was worried about possible toddler hysteria, but Dr. Nix and the dental hygenist Mayra Cruz were amazing with her. They both provided great advice going forward and we both can't wait to return in 6 months!
Great dentist.
Dr Nix is the best dentist I've been in so far... even the staff, they were so accomodating. Keep it up!!!
Its was a pleasant visit :-)
Dr Nix is a great Dentist. He is gentle, compassionate and quite the comedian, at least I thought so. The office is friendly and efficient, a great experience overall.
Dr Nix and his staff are outstanding professionals. I highly recommend their practice.
Probably the most comfortable appointment and cleaning I've ever had. Dr. Nix and his staff are just the best!
I followed him from his last office for a reason! He is very personable, funny, and does a good job. I have plenty of dentists to choose from where I live, but I would rather drive 30 minutes to go to him.
Very professional, and very knowledgeable. If you need dental work, this is the place to go. Best dentist in Montgomery County!
The whole staff is professional and friendly
Great dental visit...wait that can't be right dentist & great in the same sentence lol! Dr. Nix was thorough, courteous and has a sense of humor. His office team Maureen and Stefani were also very helpful and personable. Made my trip to the dentist "boring" and boring is a good thing when it comes to a dental visit :)
Excellent! I see why his ratings are so high.
Dr. Nix always puts me at ease during any procedure. I look forward to my 6 month check ups.
Very good friendly and informative.
Kind enough to squeeze me in for a mini-emergency. ALWAYS responsive as is his staff.
Professional and attentive. As good as it gets with a dentist.
Just as I was told by a friend, he was easy to talk to, didn't make me feel bad about how I care for my teeth (I know I don't floss, I know I brush too hard) but he gave me great tips to reverse some of my problems, also listened to my concerns and everything was so fast and thorough. Highly recommend.
Dr. Nix was very friendly, explained things to me in terms I could understand, and was not judgemental or harsh! His staff were excellent, especially the hygienist, Maya. Highly recommend!
I really liked Dr. Nix. He was friendly and professional. He took the time to explain what he was doing and answer my questions. I had previously gone to another dentist practice in Silver Spring and they told me I had a 'pre-cavity' that would require treatment...then also mention my good insurance. I didn't feel like I was being treated unnecessarily with Dr. Nix, so I will be using him from now on.
Great! He even did my cleaning and explained everything very well. The receptionist/insurance lady was very knowledgeable.
I no longer am afraid of Dentists. I am comfortable and have been very satisfied with all the work he has done. He gets to know his patients.
Dr. Nix is a top level dentist and his chair side manner is great!
I had the same dentist for 20 years and was devastated when he retired a few years ago. Since then it has been a mix of trying new dentists for an appointment or two and neglecting oral health check ups when I got too frustrated in my search for a replacement. Enter Dr. Nix. He started my new patient appointment by sitting down with me and asking me about myself -- I was so surprised by his question I didn't know what to tell him! I couldn't believe he wanted to know about me as a person before he even asked about me as a patient. We chatted for a few minutes about ourselves, my dental history, and any concerns I was having, and then began one of the most thorough and gentle cleanings I've had. I wish I could remember the hygienist's name because she was wonderful! Afterwards, Dr. Nix returned and went through my teeth one by one, sharing his observations for each tooth. He gave me his professional opinion but offered multiple options for treatments. What a nice guy! I am so glad he was accepting new patients, because I am planning to stick with him as long as I'm in the area.
We are new to the practice and we received a warm welcome. My middle school-age daughter liked Dr. Nix a lot, even though she had been apprehensive about seeing a new dentist. So far, so good...
He is really excellent as the feedback continually states...sharp, professional and excellent manner. His staff are also very good.
Dr Nix, Ms Myra, Ms Front Desk and forgot her name the fourth girl Ms ..??: they work together nicely. I like that house! Feels like going to your home. Thank you.
This was my second visit with Jacob. He has come across as knowledgeable and caring, and taken time to answer my questions. His staff is aces, too.
Dr. Nix is very personable and makes all visits enjoyable.
Like many people I loathe going to the dentist and had not gone in awhile because of the experience at my last dentist. I was referred to Dr. Nix by a friend and I'm so glad I decided to go. Everyone was professional, friendly, informative and helpful from my initial phone call through my first visit. The whole process was such a pleasant experience that I'm actually looking forward to going back in 6 months!
Dr. Nix came highly recommended by folks on community listservs, and for good reason. I highly recommend Dr. Nix and his staff. The office is low-stress and wait times have been minimal. I have a fairly complex course of work to be done, and Dr. Nix has been generous with his time in explaining and discussing options. So far, I've had exams and simple oral surgery, and all has gone well.
Dr. Nix and his staff are great. They aren't overbooked with patients so you get prompt individual care. Not many people like going to the dentist but taking care of your teeth is important and this is a good place to feel cared for in the process.
DR Nix is a caring DMD who displays a high level of concern for his patient's comfort. I highly recommend him.
Fine visit
Staff and medical personnel were friendly, courteous and professional. I have several small children and they are a very family-friendly business.
My visit with Dr. Nix was pleasant, calm, and informative. He is transparent about why he made certain recommendations and gave me a sense of control as a patient.
Dr. Nix & staff are always personable and professional. On my first visit, I had to call because I was lost in the neighborhood, and they very patiently walked me through finding both the office and good parking.
Outstanding dentist who assures that his patients are comfortable and satisfied with the finished product.
Pleasant and professional
Dr Nix is the best.
I'm new in town and needed an urgent appointment as I was at a 9.5 on the pain scale with tooth pain. Dr. Nix's office was close to my office and when I called to see if they were accepting new patients, I got an appointment for 2 hours later. Walked into a cheerful office staff and a clean organized waiting room. Got the new patient forms completed and was seen immediately. Dr. Nix was a total professional and after x-rays showed him the problem with my tooth, we decided on a course for my recovery (prescribed antibotics for the infections and a referral for the root canal and a new crown once those are done). I am very pleased to have found my new dentist!!
Dr. Nix is a young man, well educated in his field, personable, friendly without being over bearing and very professional. This is my second visit with him (I've having a crown replaced following a root canal) and I was completely at ease with him and his staff. Stephanie, his dental assistant, was able to get me relaxed enough that I barely noticed the injection Dr. Nix was giving me. Maurene (sp?) at the front desk was truely helpful in explaining and handleing the billing and payment portion of my visit. I will be back in the future
Dr Nix is wonderful! He's extremely thorough. He and his staff are professional but also very personable-a good balance! I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
I have been looking for a new dentist for over a year and consider myself lucky to have been seen by Dr. Nix. He has an excellent bedside manner and was also straightforward with what he felt needed to be done and what did not.
Dr. Nix always does a great job describing what the problem is and the options to work on it. He is the best dentist I have ever been to!
